[video clip] >> there was one piece of what i said that turned out to be wrong. there was not a demonstration. what i said was, there were extremists who came to our facility with heavy weapons. i indicated when asked if they could be al qaeda or allocated affiliates or libyan affiliates. and then they attacked and a violent fashion. host: on the front page this morning. let's get to your phone calls and your reaction and what this means for the president or secretary of state hillary clinton and her successor. on the republican line, good morning carlo. caller: thank you for taking my call. i think it is that what has happened to politics today. susan rice made comments. she was on five major networks taking a story supposedly given to her from intelligence that the video has caused the attacks. we know that is incorrect. the bottom line is, people were killed. they had seven hours to get the people out of libya and we did not send help. the president said that they should come after him if they
's quoting is a "washington post" misreading of what i had said in an editorial board meeting which what corrected that day. i said it correctly three times and evidently unclearly one time and the reporters decided to run with the one. but it was fixed before noon the next day. so, these things happen to those of us in politics who talk too often and can misspeak which is why we try to stay away from hypotheticals and discussions about pink or silver unicorns and whether or not we'd like one and how much we'd pay for a silver unicorn. >> i'm with north korea. i don't think this is a unicorn. i think this is a steed. this horse has left the corral. the proposals are on the table and worth probably going through them. i will let you get a chance to respond to whether or notes this helps or hurts the republican party and that vote is in the house, not the senate. my apologies. >> this is why my argument is if we can get the negotiations on c-span, then we would see accurately what both sides are saying. what david brooks wrote is, of course, the democratic narrative and that's what obama's
